Welcome to the 4 Paws Society!

The 4 Paws Society is committed to providing hope and love for abandoned animals. We specialize in all-breed dog rescue. We are located in SW Louisiana.

We rescued 417 rescue dogs in Lake Charles and SW LA during our first year!

Despite the commitment of animal control/shelter workers to the animals in their care, over 5 million animals are being killed in shelters in the USA each year. We encourage Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana residents to adopt an abandoned animal rather than buy.

The question is simple, Why buy while shelter dogs die?


Kudos and Thanks to Petco!

Thanks KPLC!

KPLC has always been supportive of the efforts of local groups that support our 4-legged friends.  We thank our community minded station!

We especially want to thank reporter Lee Peck, an animal lover and avid supporter. As KPLC post links to 4 Paws related stories on their award winning website, we will post them here.

Thanks, Jambalaya!
